Original descriptions of taxa. For coccolithophores, and many calcispheres, these are pages from the Farinacci & Howe Catalog of Calcareous Nannofossils. In other cases (e.g. non-calcifying haptophytes) the data is directly compiled on this site. The "Catalogue of Calcareous Nannofossils" was originally compiled by Prof A. Farinacci 1969-1989, since 2000 it has been updated and extended by Richard Howe - see The Farinacci and Howe Catalog - an Introduction.

Original Description

Cells symmetrical, spherical to oval or conical, with two equal, homodynamic flagella. Haptonema slightly shorter, equal or longer than the flagella, and can be coiling or non-coiling. Haptonema and flagella inserted apically. Cells may have large organic spine scales. The flagellar apparatus may have a simple R1 flagellar root. Nucleotide sequences for the SSU and LSU rDNA distinct
